Just over a year since it became fully operational, this is the 1000th load of timber being sent into our new fully automated Timber Treatment Centre which is one of the most advanced of its kind in the UK.
Built at a cost of £2.75 million, the new facility not only dramatically increases the efficiency of our treatment operation it also hugely improves our flexibility in this part of the business. On top of that, the Centre offers a much improved environmental profile and far better working conditions for those involved in that area.
We have plans for a new video to show you what happens in the mill and in the Timber Treatment Centre but work on that is held up by you-know-what. In the meantime, you can get an idea of how the Centre works here.
